Trump says he wants Nauert as next United Nations ambassador

President Trump said he will nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the next us ambassador to the United Nations.

However, Haley admitted she and the president "agree on most things", but "there are certainly things that we don't agree on". "She's very talented, very smart, very quick".

"While I'm not denying her credentials or abilities to hold this new position I will say that sexual harassment is about to become an even bigger issue in the White House", Nathaniel Berman wrote in an op-ed for TV Over Mind.

Former President Barack Obama's United Nations ambassadors, Susan Rice and Samantha Power, had the designation, as did Haley, who came to the role after being South Carolina's governor.

If confirmed, Nauert, 48, would replace Indian-American Nikki Haley who had said in October 2018 that she would be leaving the United Nations post at the end of this year.

Ms Nauert, who became State Department spokeswoman under former secretary Rex Tillerson, did not respond to requests for comment.

Nauert had worked for Fox News from 1998 to 2005 before joining ABC.

Other than her 20-month run as the top spokesperson at Foggy Bottom, Nauert has no diplomatic experience. Then-Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., and others like Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. - now a close Trump ally - hammered Obama for giving a deputy national security adviser job to Ben Rhodes despite his lack of previous experience in those areas.

According to reports, news of the potential appointment of an establishment Republican had been well received by some Democrats and Republicans, but the confirmation process is nevertheless likely to be tough.

But her relationship with current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appears to have been better.

Others, including former USA ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, criticized the choice. She will learn the brief.

It was not immediately clear if Nauert would be able to defend Israel in the same powerful way as Haley did.

"It's interesting to me, in the middle of all this talk about Mueller and all this noise, here you have the president making a great pick for attorney general and a very solid pick for the U.N".

Trump has been critical of the United Nations, complaining about its cost to Washington and criticizing it for focusing on bureaucracy and process rather than results. And the pick for the high-profile U.S. policy megaphone, seems more than justified, at least at first glance.

U.S. President Donald Trump has chosen former Attorney-General (A-G) of the George H.W. Bush administration, William P. Barr, for the role again.

Heritage Foundation fellow Brett Schaefer said Nauert has proven she has the ability to explain and defend US foreign policy, the core requirement for being a USA ambassador to the world body.

"Although an investigation shouldn't be launched just because a President wants it, the ultimate question is whether the matter warrants investigation", Mr. Barr had said. "Ambassador Haley was a far more high-level figure, particularly early in the administration".
